I’m not sure if you found out about the relays on the side of the car. If it is like my 88s3 those relays control the ac fan one is used to turn it on when you use the ac and the other one is used to start the ac fan if the temp sensor on the edge of the fan shroud still works. I installed a after market temp sensor and tied it into that wiring. Now it runs after the car is shut off and helps cool the motor off ( which is needed here in Florida)
Dale, Happy New year!
The proper paint code is Grigio Grafite...Graphite Gray. AR 705. If you have something else I would love to see it. Giigio Mare cloud gray) is more of a grey with leanings toward white. Only one car I know of in that color belongs to Keith Martin. There is no known color formula for this. Bill Gillham had to get a spectral analysis and hand tint to the original when the car was recently restored.
Terry Rushbrook has Duco Stickers and can put the correct code on it. I believe he was the one making stickers. Might want to check with him. If you need a direct email, his brother lives out here in Prescott AZ.
I don't envy you right now with the snow and ice with biting cold.
You can email me direct at [email protected]
I will see if I can get a source code for you for Duco.

Merry Christmas to you. I am in the final stages of a restoration of my '65 Veloce. Pretty much down to the details. I'm trying to make a Duco sticker for her. I can make out some of the old one..... I'm 90 percent sure the color is Grigio Alba - a real surprise as I always thought it was Grigio Mare. but when I start playing in Photoshop with what is left of the old one I'm sure it's Grigio plus another 4 letter word that begins with an A. The number is 95 - C - ????. The Alfa code is 701. I've seen a Lambretta from the early 60's painted this color as well as a 1960 Berlina and they are a match - at least on the computer screen. Plus the documentation I've found for AR 701 says it was used through the late '60's. Do you have any idea what the Duco code is for Grigio Alba? Or who might know?
Thanks for any help you can give me. Hope we cross paths in the future.
If you still have car let me know, I would be interested. Isold by last 164 a couple of years ago and said I said I was done with them, but I just love these cars drive. Even my wife likes them and she isn't a car person at all.
Let me know
This is Greg in Vegas. I thought of something else I could use off you parts car when you get it. My upper windshield trim, on the inside, is cracked in 3 places from the mounting screws being tightened to tight. If yours has one that is at least one piece or 2 (separated @ the rear view mirror) pieces, I can repair that. Keep me in mind on that itewm as well as the carb filters.
Hi - are you still keeping track of Q owners? On Saturday I will be taking delivery on mine in the Seattle area. I would be curious to know if you could give me some history on the car using its VIN. - Kevin
